Ten years since Max Milligan and Cherry Lee Mewis started working together, the pair are performing a special and nostalgic anniversary show at Bedford Esquires on Friday.

The first song they recorded was Everybody Here Wants You in 2005 which was included on their Little Girl Blue album released in 2007.

It was followed by 2009’s Southbound Train, 2012’s Heard It Here First, 2013’s Cherry Pickin’ EP and last year’s Catch My Drift album – their body of work which has firmly secured Cherry’s place as a rising star on the UK music scene.

Cherry and Max, together with their band, will be performing their special anniversary show on Friday at 7pm. Projector screens will showing old photos and old footage, with the duo promising this really will be one to remember.
